Why S’poreans not creative: we don’t cheat enough

In Uncategorized on 06/02/2019 at 4:10 am

There’s a lot of angst among S’poreans, the PAPpists, the anti-PAP mob and us ordinary S’poreans, that S’poreans not creative enough to survive in the future.

They ever tot that we don’t lie or cheat enough? Or more generally break the rules?

To be more creative, we could try lying in a controlled environment. Find online logic games and cheat at them, play Scrabble with a dictionary, or write a story about something that is untrue? Such tasks can get our brains thinking flexibly, beyond our normal comfort zone. This is not a call to become a pathological liar, but a controlled liar.

Breaking the rules to encourage creativity is echoed by the slogan “move fast and break things”, often associated with an entrepreneurial climate notorious for creativity and progress – Silicon Valley. New generation workspaces often intentionally create physical and social structures that are abnormal. This controlled “deviance” can stimulate new connections, brave new ideas.
